Description
Information
For five decades Tom Keneally has been one of Australia's most loved literary figures. Celebrated as one of the world's finest writers and known especially for the Booker Prize–winning Schindler's Ark, he is also respected for his humanitarianism and commitment to republicanism and other causes. The breadth and richness of Keneally's life and work is brilliantly explored in this engaging authorised biography.

Beneath Keneally's warm and garrulous exterior is a complex man once intermittently troubled by depression and anxiety. The prolific author and popular raconteur has known many 'dark nights of the soul'. His commitment to Catholicism once led him to train for the priesthood, but serious doubts left him unable to fulfil that ambition. Instead, he became a haunted writer – and then an uninhibited storyteller.

The result of deep research and unique interviews with Keneally himself, Interestingly Enough is the definitive account of the life of an extraordinary Australian.

'Tom stands among our great artists . . . a writer whose writing life parallels, exemplifies and is one of the crowning achievements of the Australian literature that came into being in our lifetime.' Richard Flanagan

'A true humanitarian . . . who possesses a special sensitivity and love for the human experience.' Steven Spielberg

'Every country needs a Tom Keneally – but we've got him!' Bryan Brown
